What can I say, Homestake was a huge operation. I imagine they had to lower some very large things into the mine. Did you notice the relatively small guides on the side of the cage? The hoist house is still in operation lowering a similar cage. The Sanford underground laboratory personnel use it for what ever. Some 18" gauge tracks were retained for some use I am not aware of. I assume some rolling stock must also be in use.
